Virtual Labs

Over the past few years, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute�s Biointeractive website has garnered critical acclaim from a number of international organizations that evaluate various multimedia products that educate Internet users about science and technology. Most recently, their Virtual Labs area on the site has been well-received, and they are visually entrancing and easy to use. Currently, the site contains six full virtual labs, and they include those that allow students to learn how to identify various bacteria and another one that casts participants as a young intern who is learning how to identify heritable diseases of the heart. Each virtual lab contains resources for instructors, along with an interactive quiz.
